She is so sweet and joyful. I love the dimples in this picture.
Aaron took this picture when she got out of the bath. Here hair is so curly when it is wet.
The boys made a fun friend while we were there. His family is adopting through the same agency. He was there visiting his little sister Natalie. This picture was taken during Thanksgiving dinner.
After dinner back in the room. BOY is it tricky to get a good pic of three kids. I have a new respect for the Millers and all their great pics of their kiddos.
I keep coming back to this series of pics. I love this one too.
If you have been around the McMurrays very long you know that Keagan is our dancer. He loves music more than anything and is an awesome dancer. He truly has his Uncle Damian's genes. He was trying to teach me some of his moves here. The last day at the pool.
Typical Keagan face. . . .
He was in heaven with Aaron's ipod on.
The boys at the Long Beach aquarium. They could spend hours watching the sharks.
We ate at one of our favorite restaurants after the aquarium Bubba Gumps. Kinkade was in heaven he loves shrimp and crab more than anything in the world.
Keagan on the other hand was asleep in 5 minutes on my lap he was exhausted.
Kinkade is so excited about sea animals. When we go to the library he only checks out non fiction sea animals books.
Petting sharks at the aquarium. The highlight of the California weekend. Yes, more than Disneyland.
Lucia Jancinta Shean McMurray being silly.
It was the best trip of my life. Our family felt complete. The boys exceeded my wildest dreams with how sweet and tender they were with Lucia and how interested they were in her. She is the easiest most joyful baby I have ever been around. It was heart wrenching giving her back. I can feel the stress in my stomach. I am so nervous every time the phone rings. The out calls usually come on Tuesdays and Fridays evenings from your case manager. I literally cannot think of anything else.
I really felt like her mom this time, I think she really recognized me.I could read her cues and felt like she was ours. Please keep praying for he file to exit without any previos. We will post if we hear anything. I am really ready for this process to be over and to have our baby girl home with us
